Is it normal to have ball shaped bowel movements?

For the past several days my bowel movements have been shaped like balls, is this normal?

It's not abnormal but sounds like a sign that you might be a bit dehydrated and/or constipated. Upping the water and fiber intake should help regulate things.

This is usually a sign that your stools are hard. Add more fiber to your diet or you can pick up fiber supplements at the local pharmacy.

That does not sound normal to me especially if they are big sizes unless you ate something different than normal recently. Call your doctor or a nurseline and ask. It is better to be safe than sorry.
